Gravity Media has promoted Ed Tischler to acting managing director for its UK business and Layla Cook to UK broadcast equipment rental manager.
Tischler will be responsible for the strategic direction and commercial performance of all Gravity Media’s UK-based operations, integrating the former Gearhouse Broadcast, HyperActive Broadcast and Input Media businesses in the UK.
Cook will now oversee Gravity Media’s extensive inventory of professional equipment, including 4K-ready lenses, cameras and live production tools.
Tischler said: “While Gravity Media may be a new name, we have 30 years of experience of delivering world-class content and it’s exciting for me to lead this talented and experienced team going forward.
“The production, programming and content services we can now provide under one roof have been carefully brought together to suit every broadcast need and help to guide professionals through the ever-changing media landscape.”
Gravity Media CEO John Newton added: “Ed and Layla have played key roles in our success over the years and it’s particularly pleasing for me to be able to promote from within to fill these important positions.
“Following our recent transitioning to the Gravity Media brand, it’s important to have continuity within the business, and Ed and Layla are both widely respected for their ability to meet and surpass out customers’ expectations.”
